Q:            What should swimmers bring to Practice?

A:             Please bring the following to all practices:

·         Swim Suit

·         Swim Cap – for those with hair long enough to pull back

·         Goggles – an extra pair is always a good idea

Q:            How will I know if practice or a meet is cancelled?

A:             The general rule of thumb is that if the school is closed; we will not have practice or a meet.  This applies to all holidays and snow days.  If the Weston Public Schools cancel all afterschool activities due to inclement weather practice will also be canceled. We will have practice over the winter break.  The schedule may be modified depending on how many swimmers will be around for practice.

 

The quickest way to know if practice is canceled due to bad weather is to sign up for Text Message Alerts from our team website.  This is highly recommended because it is the quickest communication we can provide in case of a sudden cancelation.  Instructions:

·         Log into your account (click here for instructions for logging into your account)

·         Click on “My Account” on the left side of the page

·         Click on “My Account” in the scroll down window that appears

·         Follow the further simple instructions by clicking click on the ACCOUNT Email and Text Messaging Setup link.
